Happy Monday! It's a new week and I hope it's starting off perfect for you! I stamped the entire weekend and feel so refreshed. It's good to just pull out random stamps and get busy. Here in VA we are experiencing cooler temps so you can FEEL that Fall is just around the corner. I'm sure we are not finished with the hot days but I'm going to enjoy the Fall teaser while I can.
This morning's project was created for my Stamps in the Mail participants. Each month I send them bonus ideas to show even more techniques and fun that they can use with the stamp set we are using. This morning I wanted to show them an idea outside of just a card using the From My Heart stamp set.
TIP: This little guy was created using LOTS of Hot Glue. Do you have a Hot Glue Gun? It's really a big friend of mine. I use it so often that I keep it on my desk all the time now. When making Rosettes the Glue Gun is a handy dandy thing and it's doubtful your project will fall apart. To make this I just did a lot of layering. Starting with a circle punch to layer the Rosette onto and then adding the Orchard Harvest DSP and Seam Binding ribbon behind to flow from the bottom. The tea bag is just wrapped around the back of the circle punch so whoever I give this to they can easily take it off and enjoy a cup of Tazo. Isn't that fun?
